Thanks for that. I'll search through that for hints, although it's
likely to be something specific to the EN12000EG because the J7F2
board, that worked fine using the same version of Minimyth, is
also based on CN700. The only difference I know of is the J7F2
uses the VT1617A, whereas the EN12000EG used the VT1618.

Looking at the mobo, with the back panel pointing away from me,
I have the jumper joining the two pins to the left. I had composite
out working with the jumper joining the two pins to the right. I
guess there are two other ways the jumper could be placed, but I
didn't want to risk trying those.

I'm very keen to get this working. If I can answer "What did you do?"
more fully, please let me know.
